8/27    What do companies like intel or mips do with all those defective
        chips or wafers that never make it to the shelf.  I want one
        just to hang up on my wall.  I'm sure Intel gets low yield with
        their one acre sized chips.
        \_ Intel made nice keychains out of the mistakes when they first
           starting fab'ing pentiums.  I think they sell the defective ones
           as geek jewelry now.
                \_ You can buy them at the Intel store in Santa Clara:
                http://www.intel.com/pressroom/archive/releases/Cn72399a.htm
                   or online at <DEAD>www.adviceforpcs.com/uniquelyintel<DEAD>
        \_ I have a full wafer on my cube wall, but I can't take it out
           of the building.
                \_ Dilbert boy.

8/5     Why is Mac OS 10.6 $29 and 10.5.6 $129? Is it a typo?
        \_ $29 for existing users.
           \_ it doens't even support ppc does it.
              \_ who cares about ppc anymore? Everything is Intel based

12/4    A question to you old crufy alumni: So lately we've suggested
        VMs, and been asked why it's necessary. We've suggested top-of-the-line
        hardware and been told we don't need that much power. So I'd like to
        ask -- what exactly do you think the CSUA is supposed to _be_?

12/3    Are any of you CSUA alums working at Intel?  Is it possible that we
        might be able to hit Intel up for donated/partially donated (reduced
        price) Core i7 Xeons when they come out?  Who would be a good person
        to contact about something like that?  We're of course willing to put
        out for them - perhaps we'll tattoo an Intel logo on toulouse if that's
        what they want :-p  -- steven
